Rock ‘n’ Roll

For many of the youth growing up in Chattanooga in the 1960’s, WFLI was one of the top rated stations.  Precious rock ‘n’ roll memories of hearing the Beatles for the first time or seeing Herman’s Hermits at the WFLI Spectaculars in Memorial Auditorium are forever linked to Jet Fli.  If you have memories or photos of the music of the time, please don’t hesitate to share here.

Anita Blevins Mitchell –  “When I was a teenager we had some friends that lived in Tiftonia and you could hear WFLI thru the plumbing pipes in their bathroom. This was so cool because it was during the time our parents still thought Rock and Roll was so bad!”

Shaun Davis – “WFLI was the most happening Radio Station in Chattanooga with the greatest Disc Jockeys, the most creative Commercials and the most awesome music on the Planet!”
